Squirrel Removal

Squirrels are one of the most common nuisance animals in Fairfield and New Haven counties here in Connecticut. We get frequent calls from local residents saying they hear scratching noises in their homes. That is a great signal that the squirrels that you see running around the yard have found a way into your home or attic.  If you are hearing them, you should call us right away. This is a problem you will want to solve quickly because it can get bad very fast. These fluffy tailed pests can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time so you need to act quickly. Call us for an inspection and estimate. Professional help is your best course of action to get them out and keep them out.

 

Our thorough inspection will confirm how the squirrels are getting into your home and we will explain the plan for removing and excluding them from your property.  Safety is a priority for us so you can feel confident that any contact we have with animals will be safe and humane. Remember, it is just as important to keep them from coming back as it is to remove them the first time. If you leave entry points open they will come back. We know what to look for and how to seal off any possible areas to prevent that re-entry.  Many times we find damages to the roof, soffits, siding or vents where they have made their way in. They are small animals that can really create costly repairs.  

Damages from Squirrels

From yard to attic, squirrels can cause damage no matter where they are.  If you have trees close to your roof squirrels have access to your attic. Soffits, siding, vents and even shingles can all be destroyed during the squirrels’ attempt to enter your attic as the search for shelter. Once inside there are a variety of things that can happen. Damage to drywall and insulation is common because they will need nesting material.  They will also saturate the insulation with urine and feces which can lead to insulation replacement. Wood surfaces can be damaged by this waste as well. 

 

The worst damage can be a result of chewing. Their teeth never stop growing so they chew anything they can find. This includes water lines and more dangerously, electrical wiring.  Not only does that mean fire hazards, it also means expensive repairs for the homeowner. Do not allow this problem to escalate, call us right away if you think you have squirrels in your home. We can place traps to catch them in all of the possible entry points after our inspection. After they are gone we will seal up the entry points to make sure they can not return.  We can also complete clean up and repairs if necessary.

Chewed wiring can be a fire hazard in your home and will need to be fixed.  We can assess your damages and complete any necessary repairs to your home in Fairfield and New Haven Counties. Along with the damages, we sometimes find dead bodies in attics. They attract other creatures to your attic. You don’t want to leave them there to draw insects and other animals inside bringing diseases with them. From the inspection to the repairs, we are prepared to help you from start to finish.
